In 25 days of work, Ocean City Public Works crews cleaned out more than 24,000 linear feet of storm drain piping and removed what amounted to about 196.5 tons of sand and sediment.
Public Works Director Hal Adkins and Deputy Director Woody Vickers provided a summary of the work at the City Council work session Tuesday.
According to Adkins, the cleanup, which also involved 144 catch basins and 31 manholes, removed 131 cubic yards of material. That would fill up about eight large dump trucks, Vickers said.
Several phases of work focused on the areas of Sinepuxent Avenue from 146th to 130th Street, Jamaica Avenue from 127th to 123rd Street, and Philadelphia Avenue from 14th to 9th Street.
